This mind blowing work of art is the most amazing journey I have ever had in an anime!

*Note: I watched this film in the Japanese dialogue with English Subtitles. I really hate dubbing. This movie took me exceedingly by surprise. Knowing it was done by the graphic designers behind the Animatrix, I was expecting noteworthy graphics, but had lesser expectations for a plot, nor did I predict even a faint trace of such strong themes and depth that would soon grace the screen. Tekkonkinkreet tells the story of two orphan boys, Kuro and Shiro (Japanese for Black and White), who have grown up together in the harsh and villainous, gang-ridden and corrupt Treasure Town. The two are inseparable, literally. As the sweet, naive little Shiro puts it when advocating an maddened, violent and delusional Kuro (now -separate- from him), "Kuro may have a screw loose here and there. But Shiro has all the screws needed." Yes, he refers to himself in the third person. Outside of them, other stories mingle with their own, such as the fall of the lead Yakuza gang to a mysterious business-oriented newcomer looking to make Treasure Town more capitalist, and the ever-growing rumors of a character called the minotaur, both of which tie the climax of the film together brilliantly. The film is also visually astounding, almost three dimensional in its fast, wide-angled motions through the CGI Treasure Town. The camera cinematography reminds me alot of something Stanley Kubrick would do, had he gotten involved with this genre. The visuals are then paired very beautifully with a beautifully eclectic electronica soundtrack that blends into its surroundings with occasional circus music and distorted voices appearing here and there in the melodic synthesized tones, which change tempo and volume frequently to greatly affect the intensity of the scene. I highly recommend this movie for any occasion.
